I have talked about my identity as a Latina extensively (on Twitter, on this blog, etc.). I have talked about how not seeing Latinxs in STEM made me wonder if I could fit in and be a leader in the field. I have talked about how that lack of visibility, that lack of relatability, inspired me to create ConCiencia Azul (with Andrew Lewin being the true mastermind behind the podcast), allowing me to use my microphone to change how Latinxs are represented in the marine world.
Hi! I'm Melissa, an Australian-based Latina science educator, podcaster, and freelance writer. I spend a lot more time on Instagram and Twitter, but blogging is my first love. Thanks for stopping by — I hope you stay a while.
